The Met Gala 2022 shines a light on all things shimmering and splendid; its ‘Gilded Glamour’ theme a homage to the ineffable wealth and prosperity the era of industrialisation brought America. Professional Beauty brings you the top makeup looks of the night and the products you will need to achieve them.
